Call for projects – Sound Development City Expedition 2014 (Riga to Helsinki) – deadline 25 April 2014

About Sound Development City

Sound Development City was initiated in 2012 by Sound Development with the aim of providing creative freedom to artists working in various disciplines.

Every year in late summer, Sound Development City sends ten artists on a three-week-long expedition between two European cities. During the expedition, artists can work on individual projects, explore new cities, cultures, and different living environments, and establish new connections.

Sound Development City is an adventure, a place for experimentation, and a research trip. It seeks to encourage the search for individual means of expression, provide new sources of inspiration within unfamiliar settings, and create opportunities for artists to exchange and collaborate.

Sound Development City gives artists time – time for processes to develop, for experimentation, for taking new paths – but also going astray, and for detecting and discovering the unexpected.

Each edition of Sound Development City follows a specific thematic focus, and takes place at different cities. The expedition targets artists working in various disciplines. Participants are selected through an open call.

Sound Development City is a project by Sound Development. It was developed in collaboration with Heller Enterprises. The project is financed by Sound Development and organized by Heller Enterprises.
